Truck Driver (Former Employee), calgary abJuly 3, 2014
Poor management, all works were over worked. They worked hard at keeping workers happy despite how the skills displayed by the GM wasn't up to scale for a large company.

Job security within service department
Branch Manager (Former Employee), OntarioFebruary 18, 2013
Pros: advancement
Cons: difficult work & family balance
Service department is a great place to start to work through the company as you are able to understand the dynamics of the company from the ground up.

Management is not always on the same page with one another, as UniFirst is a US based company it feels as the Canadian market is alwasy thought of last when it comes to marketing strategies.

Warehouse worker (Former Employee), Woodstock, OntarioDecember 27, 2012
Pros: good benefits, lunch truck on site, friendly people
Cons: not enough work, dealing with insulation-filled laundry
A typical day at work including sorting laundry and unloading and loading trucks. I learned how to become a much quicker, more efficient worker. The management is well-organized, efficient, and very friendly. The hardest part of working at UniFirst was learning to pace myself. I most enjoyed the satisfaction of a job well done.

Outside Sales Representative (Former Employee), Saint JohnSeptember 27, 2012
Pros: free lunch with the boss.
Cons: paperwork
Your only as good as your next sale. Company needed to spend more money on branding itself. Hard to sell their products in Canada especially on the east coast where your customers never heard of the company.

A great, fast-paced place to work
Route Service Representative (Former Employee), Bossier City, LAJanuary 3, 2015
Pros: great benefits
Cons: trucks always break down leaving you stranded for hours
A typical day starts with a check of all product and clothes that may need to be delivered before you start your route. I've learned the importance of maintaining a strong relationship with customers and how to make quick decisions. Management was very helpful in every endeavor and made sure we made as few mistakes as possible. The hardest part of the job is having to explain to customers why their product is/will be delayed. The most enjoyable part of the job is having your customer personally call your supervisor and tell them what a great job you're doing.
